    LOOK: Sneak Preview of President Duterte's Bahay Pagbabago in Malacañang

    Manila — President Rodrigo Roa Duterte welcomes his staunch supporters and bloggers led by Dr. Lorraine Marie T. BadoySass Rogando Sasot, and Rey Joseph Nieto of Thinking Pinoy - TP at the Music Room in Malacañang Palace on February 7, 2017.

    "It was supposed to be just a meet and greet with photo op. But because the kwentuhan got so good -- never engage someone who writes, there will not be enough time for all the words -- President Duterte extended our courtesy call. Not only were we served dinner, he invited us to the official residence for more talk. We arrived in the Palace at around 8:00 pm. We left at past 1am. He could not join us for dinner though, but he encouraged us to wander around the residence and enjoy the gardens because, "That is not my house. That is yours. The people pay for that." said prominent lawyer Atty. Trixie Cruz-Angeles.

    Duterte supporter and well-known writer Krizette Laureta Chu also shared her experience as President Rodrigo Duterte himself tour them inside his house in Malacañang Palace.

    Sneak preview of President Duterte's Bahay Pagbabago house:

    Sala (Living Room)
    This is the receiving room that leads to another bedroom, the larger one occupied by his family when they are in Manila.

    This larger room is for his family, his grandchildren when they visit, and wife Honeylet and daughter Kitty, who sometimes spends weekends with him.

    Of course all beds have their required mosquito nets.

    This is Duterte's room. Very small as you can see, as we're all cramped. It's probably 20 square meters at most. He shows us his no frills banyo (bathroom). He uses Colgate for his toothpaste and Safeguard as his soap. The banyo is super small. There is a larger banyo in the larger bedroom with a Jacuzzi. "That is PNoy's," he says. He chose this bedroom, which used to be Josh's (Kris' son), so he could give the bigger bedroom to the family.

    Krizette also added that when they were there, it feels alangan (awkward) but the President said, "Feel free to roam around. This is YOUR house. This is the Filipinos'. It's your tax that paid for this."

    So, yes, it's true that the President sleeps with a mosquito net even in the Official Residence, where he has chosen for himself, the smallest, simplest room in the place as confirmed by Atty. Cruz.
